A Bookstore the Size of a City Block!



It’s Spring break time at my house. And while I imagine this in my head…

I am marooned here for a quiet week of sun and reading (not necessarily in that order.)

 

 

 

 

In fact, my Spring Break starts with a…

 

 Luckily for me, the van is headed to Portland, home of Powell’s Bookstore! I may not have the tropical beach, but I will definitely have the books.

 

Now, it’s true I am an e-book author and love my Kindle a lot, but I also read old-school :)   I’ll post some trip pictures on Facebook so hop on over and  join the conversation! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kathy-Dunnehoff/100342156725545?ref=hl

 

Meanwhile, Happy e-Reading & paperback reading too!

Mother’s Day Month!



Sixteen years ago I became a Mom, and I celebrated the day.

Thirteen years ago I became a Mom again, and I celebrated the “Mother’s Day Three Day Weekend.”

This year with a sixteen-year-old daughter and a thirteen-year-old daughter, I have been referring to May as “Mother’s Day Month!”

But this year in addition to receiving, (’cause my family knows when Mama’s happy, everybody’s happy) I’m doing a little giving.

All day Mother’s Day Sunday, I’m offering my novel, Plan On It, for FREE. This full length romantic comedy is about a woman who sets out to have a baby and decides to choose the father based on what she knows best… the science of biology! You can download it right from the Amazon Kindle store

I wrote Plan On It by swapping babysitting with a neighbor, and I’d like to celebrate Mother’s Day by giving it away. I’ve given away over 50,000 downloads of my other novels and want to see moms out there enjoying a free read on their special day.

 

I hope you enjoy Mother’s Day… Mother’s Three Day Weekend & Mother’s Month!

The One That Got Away



And no, I’m not talking about a guy. I’m talking about my week. It was a crazy, busy one, the kind that mothers of children on summer vacation know. And the worst part was they weren’t even the problem. (Okay, they were a small part of the problem.)

A To-Do List Because I Can’t Help Myself

My goal was to neatly divide up my week. Prepping for my college classes at Flathead Valley Community College on Monday and Tuesday and teaching the three classes I had scheduled. Then a day or two devoted to promoting “The Do-Over” a process I am enjoying a great deal. I get to sit in my little home office and see where in the world the book can get to! And then today, Friday, I wanted to spend the entire day with my Dad, a weekly occurrence that sometimes gets squeezed out of my schedule.
Then in the manner of the best laid plans of mice and women… my cold, that has taken on a life of its own, dropped me against my will on the couch.

The Still, Small Voice

I tell my children with my wisest voice, “first there’s a whisper, and if you don’t listen, the universe will knock. If you choose to ignore the knock, you’ll get knocked over. I have been mightly ignoring the universe politely asking me to relax, so it asked me to RELAX!

The Imprint on the Couch…

I have, it’s true, managed this post…  but my house is a mess, I’m not prepped for a new class that starts Monday, I have sticky notes that have adhered to other sticky notes as if they were a coral reef, and I still have two flats of flowers all gangly and waiting to be planted. My schedule today and tomorrow is to really make a big dent in my couch and trust that good things come to those who (sometimes) allow themselves to wait.
